Weather News

(WWLP) – A complicated storm will bring a wintry mix of snow, sleet, freezing rain, and rain to western Massachusetts today. Plan on a slower than usual, slushy, crusty, and icy Thursday morning commute.

Winter Weather Advisories of various start & end times have been issued by the National Weather Service for ALL of western Massachusetts.

WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY:

  • Hampden and Eastern Hampshire Counties: Until 1pm for sleet and freezing rain.
  • Eastern Franklin County: Until 7pm for snow, sleet and freezing rain.

  • Southern Berkshire County: Until 4pm for snow, sleet and freezing rain.
  • Northern Berkshire County: Until 10pm for snow, sleet and freezing rain.

In general, the farther south & east you live, the earlier you’ll switch from a wintry mix over to rain. The farther north & west you live, the longer you’ll hang on to an icy mix.
